Oh man, super intense. I love the vivid imagery and the clear view of their love that it gives me.

Dang! Okay, that wasn't a happy ending. ;) But then again, some narratives really aren't supposed to be. This is so intriguing, so mysterious. Are any of these events literally happening? Is it all just a metaphor? Because we're in a magical universe with HP, there's never really any way to be sure. Is it some kind of magical ritual of punishment? I could actually kind of see it that way, and in that case, it could be something that is literally happening. Maybe some weird Wizengamot-ordered thing? although I don't think that this is what you intended... in fact, I think it's pretty clear that you really do mean this to be a metaphor... it does kind of work that way too, as a story of actual events. So many different ways to see this fic!

This is so beautifully written! As I read, I could clearly see how each action, each stage, each hurt could apply to Draco and Ginny's relationship.

Of course, the most tragic part is that Ginny would aid in Draco's slaughter, that she would be the one to hurt him worse than anyone before she made the killing blow. But then the idea that neither of them want to be put in that position, but can't help but to be forced into that arena. I could see the most blood thirsty people being Ginny's family and friends. Why else would Ginny feel obligated to play this role in their relationship? Unless her family pushed her, unless they were so unsupportive of her that she ended up hurting Draco just to try to win some of their love and respect back?

And then once he's been hurt, once he's left her forever, she realizes what was most important, just when it's too late to save him. D:

Such a tragic metaphor. I think you described their relationship beautifully. You've definitely left me thinking about their relationship in a way I never have before. Thank you for sharing! (And sorry if any of this is incoherent and rambley and not very well thought out. I'm so tired, but I wanted to get my thoughts down while they were fresh.)

Author's Response: Thank you! I think this situation is only a possibility, if they allowed communication to break down and Ginny hardened her heart to him because of what people said about him. So many choices, so many different outcomes... thankfully they aren't all this angsty!
